There is an ad at a Virginia Metro station for a film called ”Sick & Sicker” that criticizes President Obama’s Affordable Care Act and displays the phrase “Go to hell, Barack.”
Disrespect is legal.
Apparently, disrespect is also acceptable as long as you publicly disrespect a black Democratic president.
The ad is protected by the Constitution, Metro said in a statement Wednesday afternoon.
“WMATA advertising has been ruled by the courts as a public forum protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution, and we may not decline ads based on their political content. WMATA does not endorse the advertising on our system, and ads do not reflect the position of the Authority.”
Go to hell, “Sick & Sicker” publicity seekers.
